My experience show then effective support must be SIMPLE and TARGETED, this is idea of actively supporting propagating of existing co-working places:

In Czech Republic we have as part of TheWORKs social network program called Jelly!, which propagate co-working by organizing regular FULL DAY free attend meetings when anybody go and can work one full day. EC can sponsor (compensate to co-working centers) this time. Doing it for example 2 days per month can be less administratively intensive, them personal support of individual web entrepreneurs.

How will your concept support web entrepreneurship?

Getting experience with co-working centers. Because web entrepreneurs are working in virtual place , it's important for them to get regularly connected in real world to have face-to-face social interaction balance. Contacts created in co-working places are often source of inspirations or even long therm cooperations. Indirect support of Innovations, because (REAL BUILDING - Physical) centers like co-working, incubators, technology parks and Think Tanks are designed and build as Innovation enables and supporters.

What kinds of resources will be needed to get this concept off the ground and scale it?

Simple fixed price DIRECT sponsoring based on capacity (number of seats) and infrastructure background (separated presentation offices and so on).

How could we get started?

Support program compensations as part of current programs like Work At Jelly. You can start PILOT in Prague, we have diversity of co-working centers, but they are relatively small, so it will be cheaper plus Czech Social network can be used as efficiency monitoring tool.
